Scratching the Surface: Silas Munro

Communication Arts Faculty on Jarrett Fuller's Popular Podcast

Silas Munro is a designer, educator, and writer based in Los Angeles. He’s currently an Assistant Professor in Communication Arts and MFA in Graphic Design at Otis College of Art and Design, Advisor, Chair Emeritus in the MFA program in Graphic Design at Vermont College of Fine Arts, and his work and writing has been published in many forms around the world. In this episode, Silas and I talk about what it means to be a ‘design nomad’ and how this applies to ideas around expanded practices and cross-disciplinary work, how teaching influences his design practice, and how to think about decolonizing graphic design history.
